Remember Your Beloved Pet
I'm in luck, the cats will stay at home

My cats dont have to go the kennel, because my son will come once a day to feed them and change the litter. That takes a huge load of my mind, I was sick about them going to the kennel. Its funny when people dont communicate, I thought that they wanted me to put the cats in a kennel (he and his wife), but he didnt want me to spend money on a kennel and he said that cats would be in their own environment and not confined, thats 100% better. I asked him if he can stay awhile when he comes over with my granddaughter whos 4. I dont know, the cats go and hide whenever they come visit so, its mute unles he wants to coax them under the bed. They are not the most "sociable" cats. But when I am alone, boy oh boy, they want my attention all the time and especiially in the morning before 6 am one of them will start the yowling until I get up. They have their food bowls full but they want me to get up.

They will miss me terribly I fear and cry looking for me. I know this because when I took a trip before, the lady downstairs reported to me that the cats cried every night, and she heard them. I couldnt help that. That was another place. But I have the solace that my son will come by once a day to feed and change the litter. Thats all I could ask and I have the biggest load off my shoulders that I dont have to bring them to kennel...thankfully.
